Hi,

Computer recognizes the PCMCIA card with fore wire port but when I connect the cable with camcorder and turn on nothing happens.

Please help me out.

Thanks

Naveed.

Nothing will "automatically" happen.

Be sure the camcorder is off; then connect the camcorder's DV port (not USB) to the computer's firewire port (not USB) with a firewire cable (not USB). Then put the camcorder in Play or VCR mode, launch MovieMaker and Capture or Import the video. If it still does not import, download and install WinDV to get the video from the digital tape to the computer...

When you have the camcorder connected, the power it up in Play mode, "Launch MovieMaker and Capture or Import the video" what happens?

When camcorder is connected and I start movie maker or winDV it doesnt even recognize the camcorder and thats why I am unable to download any file.

Computer doesnt even recognize that camcorder is attached.

To figure out where the error is.

I have to take the camcorder to other machines and test it there.

If the camcorder works, I know my PC has issues. If the camcorder does not work on other PC or Apples I know the camcorder (or how I set it up) has issues.
